So I’ve been using iOS 5 on both iPad 1 and iPhone 4 for a couple of days now and I thought I’d follow up on my previous post about what I thought would impact me. The first thing to note is that it took two days to update the two devices. That’s due to how long it takes to download over a relatively slow link, and how long it takes to re-flash the OS followed by a very long, slow restore of all data – around 30GB on each of my devices.

There are some really nice looking changes on the way for Apple mobile users lucky enough to have a device that can be upgraded to iOS 5. I thought I’d throw together a quick look at how this will change things on a practical level for me as I use an iPhone and an iPad for work and personal use. Update: 2011-10-13. I’ve added some more details.
To round off my mini-series about software I use, I thought I’d do one on Windows Mobile (AKA Pocket PC or PPC). * Pocket Informant * Keepass PPC * Microsoft Reader * MobiPocket Reader * PIM Backup * Pocket Navigator (Memory Map) * Laridian Pocket Bible * WeatherWatcher * Google Maps * Tombo * Tom Tom Navigator * SuperDoku * Bejeweled2 There are one or two other small utilities I also use and I have a bespoke WM6 installation that includes some tools.
